The Numismatic Collection at the Kelsey: History and Highlights

Irene Soto Marín, Kelsey Museum of Archaeology
Friday, March 5, 2021
12:00-12:30 PM
The majority of the numismatic collection at the Kelsey Museum comes from archaeological excavations undertaken by the University of Michigan in the first half of the 20th century. This talk will serve as an introduction to the collection, comprising over 40,000 coins. We will talk about the history of the material, specifically from the sites of Seleucia on the Tigris and Karanis, and some highlights of the collection.

Kelsey Museum Flash Talks are 15-minute Zoom lectures by Kelsey curators, staff members, researchers, and graduate students talking about their recent research or current projects. Each presentation is followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Flash Talks are free and open to all visitors. They take place at noon on the first Friday of every month.
